Greenwell Springs Library

Greenwell Springs Road Regional Library
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
27,000 SF

This library facility for the EBR Parish Library System was sited to buffer patrons from traffic noise, to take advantage of views, to provide appropriate solar orientation, and to maximize parking and security.  Building functions include adult, teen and children’s collection areas, technology stations, administration and staff areas, and a public meeting room. Vaulted ceilings define the public collection spaces. The open plan allows staff to maintain visual control of the entire facility from the main circulation desk.
